Re: *NEWS FLASH** Nissan X-Trail ST-S Limited Edition (Australia)**
I think I know what we will be getting, having had a look at the Engine Power conversion formula:
Horse power (hp) ---> Kilowatts (kW)
hp x 0.7457 = kW
lbft to Nm (multiply by 1.3558)
I just logged into Nissan Canada and their X-Trail has the same engine as ours (2.5 QR25DE) with less power!
Their engine spec is as follows:
QR25DE – 2.5-litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine
Horsepower – 165 HP @ 6000 rpm
Torque – 170 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm
When I apply the above formula to these HP and lb-ft figures, I get the following:
123KW @ 6000 rpm
230nM @ 4000 rpm (Torque)
Our current Series I and II engine specs are:
132KW @ 6000 rpm or 177HP
245nM @ 4000 rpm Torque or 180 lb-ft
What we will be getting is a North American version of the exy, which has a more restrictive emission control system, it has 2 Catalytic Converters. Hence where the loss of power is coming from.
It is starting to make sense now
As for calling it a Series 3!!! Nissan Australia can do better than that, as it is marketed as MKII (or Series II) in Canada.
I think Roger is to blame for this, as he must have complained to Nissan Canada that the Australian exy has more power than his Canadian version. hehehe
Rich, Diesel is not a cost effective combination for Nissan Australia just yet.
NOTE: There is around 9KW power loss in the new version of the exy. Something is telling me that the "twins" mod with an added 9KW of power is gonna be VERY popular soon. hehehehe
